There is nothing more pleasant than getting out for a horse ride after a hard day. Enjoying breathtaking views, feeling the wind in your hair, communicating with a horse is a pleasure that cannot be compared with anything. We have prepared a selection of the best games about horses.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 will see you spend a lot of time in the saddle, so it’s no surprise that the game places a lot of emphasis on horses. There are different breeds of horses with different colors and temperaments in the world. In addition, the player needs to take care of his horse if he wants the animal to serve faithfully and not throw him out of the saddle at the most crucial moment. It’s not for nothing that many gamers love Red Dead Redemption 2 specifically for its horseback riding.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
If in the recent Tears of the Kingdom Link can move around the world on planes, flying motorcycles and many other vehicles, then in Breath of the Wild you need to use horses – and there are a lot of them in the game too. There are even stables scattered throughout the kingdom where you can change your horse’s harness and braid its mane.
Shadow of the Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus is famous for two things: giant colossi and, perhaps, one of the most faithful companions in the history of video games – the horse Agro. Not only does it serve as a means of moving around a large open world, but it will also be useful to the player more than once in battles against giants – the horse is the only one you can rely on in difficult times.
The Sims 3: Pets
The Pets expansion for The Sims 3 added not only cats and dogs, but also horses to the game. If desired, Sims can become professional jockeys, train their horses, care for them, and even domesticate wild horses. In the fourth part, similar functions appeared quite recently, with the release of the Horse Ranch add-on – but the third, due to its greater friendliness to mods, still wins.
Ghost of Tsushima
Finally, there are no mechanics in Ghost of Tsushima that have anything to do with horses – but the horse will be an integral part of your journey through Tsushima, no matter what playstyle you follow. Even if you’re not a huge fan of the open-ended action that’s modeled after Ubisoft games, the horseback rides through the scenic locations of Ghost of Tsushima are worth a lot.
